Our family of five stayed here for seven days over Christmas. Overall we liked the hotel very much. The rooms were roomy and clean. We had a little bit of trouble with figuring out the hot water in the shower but once we figure that out it was fine. Wi-Fi was a bit spotty

Everything, other than the staff, is average. The staff were really nice. The location is good. Close to Arenal Volcano and La Fortuna. It's on a busy road so bring a noise maker. Good for a 2 or 3 day stop on a Costa Rica tour. Wouldn't spend my whole vacation there.

The Vagabondo is OK I suppose, but really it is not special in any way. The grounds are quite nice; in contrast the room is quite dingy. It would have been far nicer with a few more lights and repainting the ghastly institutional-green wall. Except for the very good breakfast

Light switches not working, loud highway noises, horrible wifi.. the desk claimed it worked but out of 8 devices none of ours worked for more than a few seconds...two of our party were in tech field so not just operator error. Beds were fine. Less than clear swimming pool.

Hola, Ese hotel está en la fortuna, el arenal ( unas 3 horas en coche ). Dudo que tengan servicio de traslados. Puedes ir en autobús, o alquilar un coche para tu viaje. Te recomiendo ir en coche ya que vas más a tu aire.

"Maybe quieter at bach of hotel though walls apparently quite thin, inadequate sound insulation between cabins"
"Pool rooms are in the back"
"Rooms by the pool have a little less road noise but the others weren't bad."
"Rooms by the pool are quieter."
"I think all the rooms are amazing"
